Write Lab

About

The Write Lab provides tutoring services for writing you have been assigned by your WVC instructors (no matter the class). Also, you can receive help with college application letters or scholarship applications like the WVC Foundation’s general application. Tutors can help you plan your writing, cite your writing, and/or help you revise your writing before you submit your final draft. Whatever questions you have about your writing, ask them. They will help. 

Students seeking feedback on writing assignments must self-enroll in the Online Write Lab. Once you’re enrolled, you can submit essays to that class, and the Write Lab tutors will look over your work and give you substantial feedback. Please allow 24-48 hours for the best feedback.

Prepare for your tutoring appointment

By using Write Lab services, you will learn how to polish your work and avoid common errors.  The Write Lab tutors are experienced in helping you learn to organize and develop your ideas and put your thoughts into words. The tutors can also help you to understand the rules of grammar and punctuation and how they are applied.

Bring in your spell-checked and printed paper, and be prepared to stay for as long as it takes for the tutor to discuss it with you.

If you would like assistance from a Write Lab tutor regarding your work:

  • Run the grammar and spell check first
  • Please be patient and wait your turn
  • Ask specific questions.  For example:
    • Is this passive voice?
    • Is this a run-on?
    • Is this comma in the right place?
  • Feel free to ask any questions if you're having trouble with the computers.

Please remember that the tutors are here to help!

The Online Write Lab is designed to give students an opportunity to get feedback from our Write Lab tutors. The way it works is that you'll submit a writing assignment to the Drop Box. Then one of the tutors will review your writing assignment, putting comments and feedback directly on the draft you submit. Once they do so, you'll be able to check their comments and feedback and revise your writing assignment with those suggestions in mind.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. You must self-enroll in the Online Write Lab before submitting a writing assignment for review. Go to the above link and log in, and then you can add the Online Write Lab.
  2. In the Online Write Lab, click on the "Dropbox for Papers to Review," located on the Home Page in the eWriting Lab module.
  3. Click on "Submit Assignment."
  4. Use the Browse button to locate your file. Click on the file and upload it.
  5. Check the box that says "This assignment submission is my own, original work."
  6. Click "Submit Assignment."
  7. Once you submit, you should receive a submission receipt in the upper right-hand corner of the page. There will be a green check mark.

Rules for Submissions

  • Submissions must be in a Word document format (.doc, .docx)
  • You must give the tutors at least 24-48 hours before the due date of the writing assigment to review your work. The tutors will not be able to review writing assignments that are too close to the due date. Please don't ask them to. (We recommend that you submit your writing assignment at least 3 days in advance of its due date. This gives tutors adequate time to provide quality feedback, and it gives you time to incorporate that feedback into your writing before it is due.)
  • Please be polite and respectful at all times. Follow the same rules of courtesy that are required of you in your online and face-to-face classes and tutoring situations.
  • Questions about your specific writing assignment should be added in the comment box of your submission for the reviewing tutor. This will allow tutors to better understand how to focus their review and feedback. Questions about the eWriting Lab in general should be relayed to Janna Goodyear via email at jgoodyear@wvc.edu or via phone/voicemail at (509) 682-6797.
